I’m a single woman, should I buy a house?
My answer is an unequivocal “Yes!”
I purchased my first home and multiple investment properties before I ever got married.
My first real estate purchase (a condo I still own in Atlanta) was purchased 10 years before I was married.
It has served as an excellent financial investment and the perfect pied-à-terre ( French for “foot on the ground”; a small 2nd home in another city, typically a condo).
Did I have this in mind when I purchased it? Yes!
I knew that it was a great size and the perfect location for a future investment property- rental or 2nd home.
Mostly importantly, I valued purchasing a property that still allowed me the financial freedom to explore the world.
I wanted to have home ownership but, still have the financial flexibility to pursue my passion for travel.
I believe, one of the best decisions I ever made was buying a property that was well suited for me at that time in my life.
I didn’t purchase a home for a family, I purchased a home for an adventurous single woman.
If you are a single woman that aspire to marry, don’t let your future aspirations get in the way of purchasing.
